Naturality is the harmonious union of the inner and outer nature. The journey of Naturality begins with our birth. We are born as a body just like the body of any other living being on earth. We are part of the nature and fully embedded in it. Although the body is conscious, its consciousness is reflexive. Within the body, life and death occur simultaneously and are not separated from each other. There is a perfect balance. It is the state of peace, pleasure and without any mental boundaries, which is disturbed when biological survival is at stake. It is regained when survival is assured. The state of perfect balance and harmony in body comes to an end with the growth of brain when we develop moments of consciousness about ourselves and world around us. Consciousness brings fear of both death and life. In order to escape from this fear, we build an identity as the safety and protective mechanism which is borrowed from the family, society and culture. Identity is vital to live in the world. But identity impinges on the body and brain compromising its balance, peace and pleasure. Our restless quest begins to regain the lost state. Our life becomes more and more conscious and complex and takes many detours in this search. Many of us are lost.
During this search we may enter into a natural crisis where identity is dismantled and its protective thoughts, concepts and dreams crumble. The experience leads us to our natural self which though always there but hidden in the smoke screen of identity. We develop witnessing consciousness and the body is freed from identity. The body wakes from its slumber and begins to express and regulate itself more naturally, which brings peace and natural pleasure back in daily living. We are effortlessly connected with nature and accept our mortality like any other living being in the world.
The process continues and we enter from natural self into expansive mind where we experience intimate connection with the world and nature and feel one with it. In this state, the body feels even more freed and is at ease with nature. Death and life become intimate companions and there is no fear of death any more. As this process continues, we then move into expansive stillness. The body now finds its natural rhythm just like when it was born. Life and death again become two sides of one experience. Pleasure and peace reign and the body is in the state of perfect balance and harmony within and with the world around. Consciousness now is not reflexive but pure witness with stillness. Stillness is dynamic. In dynamic stillness body functions at its peak, senses are open and alert but mind is silent. The process comes full circle. Natuarlity began with the body and came back to the body. Consciousness was reflexive to begin with and ended into pure witnessing.
This is the pinnacle of human life in which not only the conscious stillness is experienced but also the body is functioning to its fullest. While the conscious stillness takes us to the highest possibility of Truth we can ever go to. The body connects us to deepest fact of the earth and the nature. It’s a harmonious union of inner and outer nature in which both the individual within and nature outside blossom to their full. Instead of adversaries to each other they become complimentary in all their dimension.
